Andrew Scheer selects former Liberal MP as Conservative deputy leader 

Conservative Party Leader Andrew Scheer has chosen Leona Alleslev, a former Liberal MP, to be the party’s new deputy leader.

Alleslev left the party just over a year ago, since the Liberals “inadequate” handling of the economy, foreign affairs, and military funding.

“Leona was a former Liberal MP who came to our side in the last Parliament because she believed in my vision, and the Conservative vision, for Canada,” Scheer announced at a news conference Thursday.

“She represents a diverse GTA (Greater Toronto Area) riding and I will depend on her to help hold the government to account while I’m on the road and to help expand our party in Ontario. I know she is more than fit for the task, and I am honoured to have her on board.”
